2017 Star Trek Cats

Here is possibly my favorite item from possibly my favorite category of collectibles:

I love books, plus I like cats (and animals in general – don’t worry, dogs too!), plus I like Star Trek – so here is the perfect combination of all three! This book shows Star Trek with all the characters as cats (or is it an alternate reality where cats are the dominant species rather than humanoids?).

Let’s take a closer look:

“Behold: A gateway to your own past, if you wish.”
Scotty is appropriately portrayed as a Scottish Fold, with a taste for fine milk.
When wearing a red shirt, nine lives don’t go very far.

Each scene and quote in this book is taken directly from an episode of Star Trek. Aside from the characters being feline, every detail is accurate from the shows. It looks like illustrator Jenny Parks had a lot of fun doing this, and was very creative in choosing what breeds of cats to portray each character as, and in how to put them into various scenes. It was tempting to post a lot more pictures from the book, but I didn’t want to give too much away. If you like Star Trek, like cats, like books, or like creative artwork, you should definitely add this book to your collection.

You can visit Jenny Parks’ website and see her works relating to wildlife, as well as her cat-ified renditions of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Wars, Marvel, Harry Potter, and nearly any other thing a nerd might love.

Next week on Zach Trek: We’ll look at an item that is (sort of) named after someone who had nothing to do with Star Trek.

    • Surprisingly not. The Klingons are also cats (slightly grumpy ones), but aliens such as the Gorn, Mugato, Horta, and others are all depicted as in the shows.
